Classic toys meet stamp collecting with the release of the Royal Mail’s Classic Toys commemorative collection of stamps, featuring iconic UK toys from the past 100 years. Designed by London-based creative agency Interbang, the series of 10 stamps showcases the creativity, quality, and innovation of the British toy industry. Toys featured in the set include the Merrythought Bear, Sindy Doll, Spirograph, Stickle Bricks, W. Britain Toy Figures, Spacehopper, Fuzzy-Felt, Meccano, Hornby Dublo model train sets, and my personal favorite: Action Man.
In addition to the stamps, the Royal Mail is also offering postcards, First Day Covers, and a Presentation Pack that provides this history behind each of the classic toys. Pricing starts at £4.50 and up.
Take a weekly look at a modern-day thing with a nostalgic influence.
